Stewart B McCulloch Figurine
SBM was a distributor supplied by other Potters. This particular
figurine was produced by the McCarty Brothers ca:1950
Here are two more McCarty Brothers Figurines and an opportunity
to do some comparisons. The figure on the left is dated 1946, the figure
on the right is dated 1945. Notice the earlier figure has her hand
in the air (supposedly to hold the umbrella handle)...the later
figure has her hand against her chest and the umbrella handle
is molded in. Notice also the earlier figure has smaller flower
openings than the later figure. Both "McCarty" signed figures
have a raised foot around the perimeter of the base...and both have
bisque face and hands.
Contrast these with the later figure signed by SBM (above)...that
figure has a glazed face and hands, a flat bottom, and even larger
flower holes. There are other subtle differences. It is interesting (to
me) how the molds changed during the short 12 year production life
of McCarty Brothers Pottery.
